ABC has its Eddie Huang pilot, and now NBC has reportedly ordered a pilot for a show about “a driven but naive 16-year-old prodigy chef who gets a job working in the kitchen for his idol, a temperamental and unpredictable celebrity chef.” The show is inspired by 14-year-old teen chef Flynn McGarry, who will serve as a producer on the series, because apparently that’s what America’s come to these days.
